Best LASIK laser and Options in Laser Eye Surgery

Being dependent on glasses can be increasingly annoying sometimes. Not only is a cosmetic concern, but there are actual functional drawbacks to using glasses. If you wear glasses, you will most certainly agree with almost all of these. These drawbacks include:

  • Glasses may get damaged or broken, fall off, or obscure peripheral vision. Sweating makes the glasses slippery, and they tend to fall off your nose. This can be a serious hindrance during playing sports. You need special prescription goggles for when out in the sun, and special prescription swimming goggles, if you want to see underwater when swimming.

  • The glasses tend to become lopsided and often do not stay in position when you turn on your side to read, or watch TV.

  • They tend to fog up especially outside, and if you wear masks or scarves that cover your mouth and nose.

  • In case of rain, or snow, or fog, your vision is completely obscured as the lenses get wet.

  • Most importantly, glasses tend to get lost. Searching for a pair of glasses, when you cannot see well without them is the most annoying part of being dependent on them.

  • Of course, for some individuals, wearing glasses mean that they are not happy with their appearance and that can also be a quality of life concern.

Thankfully, with the advent of the technological revolution in laser refractive surgery, there is actually a bouquet of options from which to choose from. Wearing glasses, in the twenty first century is no longer a compulsion, but merely a lifestyle choice.

It is therefore no surprise that almost all patients who undergo a surgery for laser vision correction report a tremendous increase in their confidence.

The reasons for this are simple:

  1. Even though one does not always acknowledge it, glasses are often considered a point of insecurity. While some people use there glasses as a fashion statement, or to project a mature or nerdy look, most people who are dependent on them, think of them as a cosmetic blemish. Especially in a country like India, young girls are very conscious about having to wear glasses.

  2. Life actually changes after laser vision correction, dramatically. Freedom from glasses, especially for those with higher powers, can be equally exhilarating and liberating.

The most important sources of delight are:

  1. Ready to go. No need to look for glasses or wear contact lenses, you wake up to crystal clear vision.

  2. No need to worry about special glasses for sports, swimming, running or the gym.

  3. Better field of vision.

  4. No fogging of lenses in humid weather, and the delight of enjoying the sun on your face

  5. Most of all, the eyes are visible, without any hindrances, and most people love the way they look without the glasses.

So if you are thinking of losing your glasses for good, and looking at a better quality of life, laser vision correction just may be what you are looking for.

Each of these surgeries has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of surgery will depend on various factors, most importantly, the health of your eye and your visual needs. An experienced eye surgeon, who has access to the latest technology, and has adequate experience in its use, will be your best guide in choosing what is right for your eyes, and your lifestyle.

In case you do decide to go ahead with surgery, you can rest assured that each of these techniques for spectacle removal has already gone through a very stringent process of checking for safety and efficacy, and only then has been made available for the general public.
